Set this up this morning. Seems to do the trick.. I would recommend to those who don't want your PC scanned, but want to play BF3.
What about setting up a restricted Windows account?

i dont know...all seems very fishy to me to be honest...now im no fan of EA or Origin...but this seems like a witch hunt right before Halloween

now i know we've all seen the weird worded EULA from EA/Origin...but honestly...im sure there are lots of programs that do a quick scan to see whats what in the computer to make sure there arent any conflicts or what not...im just sayin...lets look at this from a non-biased approach
Just google for it - there are plenty of vids/pics around - which show i.e how origin sends data into a amazon cloud and stuff .. and even if it doesnt - it has the possibilities. Thats enough to be scared of.

A User reported from a remote session of a EA support employee who was able to remote control the pc of the User via Origin.

Have a link to set it up for use with Origin?
I do not have any kind of link. I just kind of went with it. I got a few odd errors, mainly talking about how it needed more space to store the contents of the program.
I double clicked the message it told me to, and after that it started working.

Make sure you run it as "UAC Admin", I noticed some of the errors went away.

Again, i'm not trying to beat on you, just find out the truth. Do you know what is being reported back? Is it actually extracting data and reporting back? I mean, I suspect during setup most installers scan the HD to look at the file structure... but is this happening constantly? How do you know it has the possibilities?

I'm just trying to say you/we should learn what it is actually doing before speculating. Otherwise, it could be the community who looks silly, not EA.

I don't know.. I personally don't trust a restricted account all the much honestly. It may work, I don't know personally.

I mean, it's all well and good making claims, but do you actually, really know what is happening here? As someone said, it is the Origin setup file.
In the ToS they (EA) say they COULD send that data out (theres even a screenshot where origin contacts a amazon cloud server.) - Not that they would, but they could. And thats already too much, dont you think?

Having the most fun I've had in PC gaming in years. I'd rather enjoy the amazing game that is BF3 and not worry about Origin scanning to check if I have program X installed on my computer. I don't care if it knows that I have Steam or some other program that has nothing to do with my actual sensitive information. I have nothing to hide. If you're that worried about your personal information, you shouldn't be saving it nor entering it anywhere digitally to begin with. It just makes me laugh that people are so paranoid about it, yet they log into their online banking account as if they're totally secure; they have no concern in the world over THAT do they?

The day my sensitive information is stolen, I report it and have it resolved. Rather easy. I have a family member and a friend whose identities were once stolen and used to open credit card accounts. No big deal, it was resolved within a week and their credit scores were completely unaffected.
